I know we all think this team could use a WR and and some other things but if we could finally get a good D out of FA and the draft would you take the same O back?

My Offseason Dream:
Trade 4th for Vilma
Sign Asante Samuels
Sign Corey Williams
Start KK
Draft the best D players on the board.
Every position on this D could use a upgrade.

As for the O just bring back Patten let Henderson go and bring back the TE's we had. Nesbit will probably want to much money but Goodwin would be a lot cheaper then Faine and we could probably get Nesbit and Goodwin for the price of Faine.

I really don't think we are going to get any of the big name FAs. We never do, the only reason we got Drew was because no one thought he could play anymore.

Incase you aren't aware, we drafted a 6-1 4.3 running reciever in the 1st round last year.
Yea but who knows if he is ready he NEVER suited up. So we are to assume that he can go from the 6th WR to the 2nd.

BTW I thought that meach was taller then that?

He may be 6-2 or 6-3. I didn't look it up.

But the same can be said about any WR we draft. And the options in FA are no better then hoping Meachem can step it up.

I think if the Saints add nothing this offseason on the offensive side of the ball...but go out and at least make the D respectable, the Saints have a legit shot to get back to the NFC Championship next season, IMHO.

True but to me I just have a feeling that Sean will want more O. Our D is the problem and I think we are at a point that we just need to patch some holes with cheaper FA and spend Drew type money on the D.

I agree with Samuels(or another top corner such as Trufant or Asomougha) and Corey Williams. Drafting the best D player could preclude KK from starting if we select Kenny Phillips. I am sure that they will do their homework on Vilma's and Al Wilson's medical conditions to see if they are viable and would be happy to get a healthy version of either.

I personally like Faine and hope we bring him back. He wasn't really healthy this year and should improve. We should bring back Goodwin for depth. I would let Nesbit and Eric Johnson walk, unless they will come back for the minimum. I believe we can replace Nesbit in-house and can draft a good TE in the 3rd or 4th round to compete with Miller, who is serviceable.

Otherwise, I agree that we should load up on defense and possibly make a few trades on draft day to get another 2nd, 3rd, and/or 4th round picks, if possible.

What difference would any of that make when Gary Gibbs is our D.C. and when our H.C. acts as if offense is the only part of the team that matters?

We need a new D.C. first and foremost. The problem with our D was that the Best players were warming the bench. When you have that problem you hardly ever get 100% effort from your players.

We could use a little help at WR and OL but it isn't critical. Our offense more than adequate but our defense is horrid.

Meachem is 6'2", 214, and we should expect him to be starting, if, for no other reason than we spent a 1st rounder on him. Focus on D, Focus on D...I hope Loomis feels that.

We need mucho help on the OL. I don't think you spend a 1st day pick on one though. WR we can use Reggie there some if we get our Bell Cow (I hate that term) back in the line up. I think reggie should be on the field most of the time, just not at one position. If he's going to earn his 13M (2007) salary!

I understand what you are saing but no D will be sucessful with those players. At the most you can only have 2 or 3 role players we have 6 Shanle David Bullocks Young Sim and Shanle.
